My daughter has been trying to discuss with us what she sees other kids wearing, and what she sees on tv. She has told us about the outfits, and trends that I would think of as strange, and unusual. In reality there is a totally politically correct terminology. I have termed those people Free People. They are free of responsibility, and concerns for what may not be appealing to the public.
I have explained to my daughter that people that dress a little off the reservation are always challenging the system. How is that she asks, and I have to explain to her that as a business owner I hire those that are qualified. Well, maybe someone is qualified, but doesn’t look correct so I could then overlook that person because I am willing to sacrifice something in order to get the better picture.
There is no legal ramifications for these actions. It is all in how you say no. A lot of kids don’t realize that looking strange does effect their futures. Most don’t, or won’t care about not getting the job, so they move on. I have tried to keep my daughter educated in dressing like a “Little Lady” so that nothing can stand in her way of her pursuit of happiness.
What do you think about how kids dress, and act?
